We are currently at capacity and cannot accept cats at this time. Since we cater to the older cats it often takes a long time before we have openings. As a result, we do not maintain a "call list" as by the time we have availability the owner has usually found other options. Unfortunately, we have many cats that are currently being treated for illness or injury and we are so full we cannot make exceptions. We appreciate your understanding. 

Thank You.

Other (January 2017)

35 percent of our cats are known to have been in a shelter/rescue at some point in their life.

8 percent are known to have been in our local Humane Society at some point in their life.

The average age of a heartland cat is 12 years. Our oldest is 21, our youngest is 1 year.

88.2 percent of our cats are considered "geriatric." (7 years and older)

72.5 percent of our cats are 10 or older. 11.1 percent are 6 and under.

25.5 percent of our cats are in hospice care (diagnosed as terminal).

 

All of our cats are allowed to live their life to the fullest. We do not euthanize until the cat has clearly given up and then only to prevent suffering. Cats under our care are kept comfortable through pain management under the supervision of our veterinarian.
